Re: Henwing Adams (Winged Wet/Emerger)

Absolutely gorgeous Ray! I really like the focal point of this pattern, the wing! From the side it looks like the fibers are rolled or clumped in the usual way! Then you showed us the top view of this beauty! That is spectacular! So natural looking from any angle! You should be rewarded with a beaut...

Re: Chironomid

T-12,
That's just a pretty stinking cool Chironomid pattern! It HAS to catch fish no matter where it's tossed! It is relatively new to you. Have you had more opportunities to test it out?
Thanks for sharing this jewel with us!

Re: Canary Butcher

Look out Hazel! You are killing it with the beautiful blue plumage that you are showing us lately! It is just icing on the cake friend for it sets on top of some of the most exquisite tying I've ever encountered! What a stunning pattern Norm! Thanks for sharing with all of us!
